John E. King Brown, II
September 30, 1975 – April 30, 2018

Our beloved son, father, brother, cousin, nephew and friend departed this world too soon! He was born September 30th at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, New York to his beloved parents Kathy & John Sr. and John is blessed to have two loving stepparents David Wilson and Violet King. He gave his life and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in a beautiful baptism service at Greater New Hope Baptist Church along with his wife and children. When he was born, he was a gorgeous baby who grew up to be a handsome young man. He was an only child whose spirit and presence lit up any room he entered. He had thick long locks, an infectious smile with a set of beautiful white teeth, big brown eyes with long thick eyelashes that some women would pay money for, and a face full of deep dimples. When he laughed and smiled, you could not help from laughing and smiling with him, and boy did he have a sense of humor. He could tell a joke, describe an event and make you laugh uncontrollably. It was always fun to be around John.

John was the pride and joy of my life and everyone who knows me know that he was my greatest love, the best thing that ever happened to me and my best friend. I spoiled and catered to him unconditionally, and there was nothing that I would not do for him and he knew it. It goes without saying that we loved each other immensely no doubt. The same kind of love that John extended to his immediately family to his wife Sandi, John III, Jewlyan, Journey, Joyner, Jaymeson, Jasmine aka Kamari, Jayquon, Kahlil and Kiara. The children loved honored cherished adored and respected their father. His siblings, Akimie Keisha and Antwan looked up to their big brother with love and admiration. He was a great role model and he always extended a hand to support and encourage them.

John completed his education at NOVA Community College in Alexandria, VA and George Mason University majoring in Sociology. He used his education, leadership and interpersonal skills to be successful in the United States Army. John also worked in various offices overseeing reproduction of large-scale documents for RGE Engineering Services Co., Xerox Corporation and Lockheed Martin.

Let us not forget that John loved sports. He was a die-hard New York Giants and New York Knicks fan. He loved rap music, he spent a lot of time creating, mixing, and producing rap beats with his friends. One of his favorite rap artist is Biggie Smalls, and he liked underground rap music. You can find John in the local elementary school sitting in any of his children's classrooms assisting, being active as a PTA parent, mentoring students and interacting with the principal and faculty. John was very smart, articulate and a conversationalist. He had a vast range of knowledge and opinions on many topics ranging from politics, sports, religion, education, current events and music. His beloved Nanny always said that he had the "gift of gab."

John has touched the lives of all who knew him. We who remain his parents, aunts, uncles, cousins -- so many of you – nieces, nephews, friends, neighbors and co-workers we all have been enriched by his love and presence in our lives. Those family members who have preceded him in death are waiting in Heaven with their arms stretched wide to welcome him. We know that his spirit lives in us and we trust and believe in God's promise that we will see him again.

You can be sure that my son is resting easy because he knows that we are going to continue in support of his children, his legacy, his dreams and we will do our best to finish what he started in this world. John would want us to live on with the same zest for life that he embodied.

Beloved son you are forever in our hearts. Rest in peace.
